Enjoy Parvatasana from where you are, not from where you think you should be-  likedTHIS QUOTE – my interpretation :-

-APPLIED TO LIFE – ENJOY LIFE FROM WHERE U ARE NOT FROM WHERE YOU SHUD BE. – MEANING  LIVE  IN  THE  PRESENT AND ENJOY IT FULLY , NOT BY IMAGINING USELF IN DISTANT FULFILLED DAYDREAM CALLED FUTURE  – THE PRESENT HOWEVER UNFULFILLED WILL ONLY GIVE U FULL ENJOYMENT – WHERE U SHUD BE- DAY DREAMING -FRUSTRATION  SO,        ENJOY LIFE FROM WHERE U ARE NOT FROM WHERE YOU SHUD BE.

On a day when I felt venomous, Bhujangasana felt like an elixir. The basic beauty of expanding my chest and my breath transformed the sharp edges of my mind into free space. I tilted my heart up to the sky as an offering to the innate perfection of the present moment, as a testament to my deepest knowledge that only the now counts and that the past 15 hours were just that: past.

“Every conscious step we make, a flower blooms under our feet. We can do this only if we linger not in the past or future, but know that life can be found only in the present moment.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

http://www.katsaksyoga.com/2010/05/07/inch-by-inch-salabhasana-locust-pose/   according to the  practitioner,   ” I like to take an extra step between lying on my belly and lifting my chest and legs. Before I lift into Salabhasana, I gently raise my right leg off the floor, point my right toes, reach my right foot back as far as I can, then replace the leg. Then, I make the same adjustment on my left leg. This small stretch only creates about an inch more of space between my ribs and my hip points. But, as with so many asanas, every inch counts. An extra inch of space in my torso helps me lift my chest and legs completely off of the ground and fly up into the pose.      ”

Often, it is the small adjustments in life that create the space and freedom to fly.

‘I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door – or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.’  Rabindranath Tagore

Foodscapes

Photographer Carl Warner painstakingly captures all forms of food in a series of still life’s with edible ingredients he raided from his kitchen cupboards to design a series of dreamy landscapes and homey domestic scenes that appear scrumptiously good enough to eat.

http://www.damnfreshpics.com/2008/03/amazing-foodscapes-by-carl-warner.html

  This Italian inspired rural scene includes a lasagna cart, fields of pasta, a pine nut wall, mozzarella clouds, trees of peppers and chilies and a parmesan village.

Paris, London, and Rome in the summer-These are all great cities, but not in the summer. Most Parisians leave their city in August, and they have the right idea.

………. going in the winter can be nice. And even if you do pay in dollars, lodging will usually be cheaper in the late fall or winter…………….

today’s  quote “When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.” – Tuli Kupferberg (1923-2010)

checked out the blogs i wanted to read/follow – didn’t find Apartment Therapy,Everything Everywhere,Boing Boing,FAIL Blog and Information Is Beautiful , particurlarly interesting………….not sure about ebert too……

found these 2 new ones – http://uktv.co.uk/home/dgiped/kw/1 and http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/artblog

Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855), English author and eldest of the famed Bronte sisters wrote Jane Eyre (1847);

It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquillity: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it. Millions are condemned to a stiller doom than mine, and millions are in silent revolt against their lot….Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts, as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings….knitting stockings….playing on the piano….It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.-Ch. 12

Charlotte wrote “On The Death of Anne Bronte”;

There’s little joy in life for me,
And little terror in the grave ;
I’ve lived the parting hour to see
Of one I would have died to save.

Charlotte was writing her epic novel Shirley (1849) around this time of great loss and grief and it was noted that there was a change in her tone, as she states in Chapter 1;

If you think, from this prelude, that anything like a romance is preparing for you, reader, you never were more mistaken. Do you anticipate sentiment, and poetry, and reverie? Do you expect passion, and stimulus, and melodrama? Calm your expectations; reduce them to a lowly standard. Something real, cool and solid lies before you; something unromantic as Monday morning

“Life”-Currer Bell, aka Charlotte Bronte

Life, believe, is not a dream
So dark as sages say;
Oft a little morning rain
Foretells a pleasant day.Sometimes there are clouds of gloom,
But these are transient all;
If the shower will make the roses bloom,
O why lament its fall? “Life”-Currer Bell, aka Charlotte Bronte
